Baby Update

Altho very tiny, we got our very first peek at our newest family member on Wednesday. It was soo tiny, but we did get to see the heart beat and it flinched a little. Missy was soo excited to see the baby in Mama’s tummy and it was great to see her little reaction to the new baby. All in all a great visit to the doctor 🙂 Now lets just hope the rest of my pregnancy is this easy 🙂

I must say that this pregnancy *so far* is going much better than my last one with Michaela. So far I have been spared the horrible morning sickness (or should I say morning, noon & nite sickness) and really I feel great. I must confess that I do take an hour nap in the afternoon (Missy permitting) as I can’t quite seem to keep my eyes open – it’s awful come 1pm I’m pretty much conked out on the couch! I’m also in bed/asleep on the couch around 8:30ish, so maybe that’s helping with the feeling good during the day. There’s nothing wrong with a little extra sleep 🙂

Now we just have all of the planning to get thru, planning on what we’re going to do with Missy when it comes time to have the baby, planning what necessities we will need (I kept most of Missy’s stuff, but there’s some stuff I plan on buying new again), as well as names for the baby. I think we’ve agreed upon one that we like for a boy, but we honestly can’t even compile a list of girls names that we like – we are trying to get the names figured out so that when we find out what we’re having we can have Michaela call the baby by it’s name instead of “baby”. I guess we’ll just have to see how it all goes 🙂

Well, I must run, as I have some stuff to get done before I conk out on the couch.

I still can’t get my head around this..

Ya know, I was soo incredibly excited on Monday, and here we are approaching Thursday and I still can’t quite believe that there was a pretty little pink plus on the pregnancy test.

I still have the test sitting on the computer desk in the bedroom (I’m not sure why I still have it, maybe deep down inside I’m hoping that if I keep looking at it I will believe it) and every time I go to work at the computer I have to check it, just incase it’s changed. I think I was soo frustrated with the meds, Rick & just the whole process that this is really a shock that it did actually happen. I have tried to remember everything that I’ve done this month to make sure that I’ve not done anything that would’ve harmed the baby. Really I have been soo restricted with my meds etc, that I have done everything right.

I am now slowly starting to let reality sink in and the more and more I think about it, I start to worry. What if we’re faced with medical problems like we were with Missy?? What if this time it’s something worse than we dealt with last time?? I know this time around I will be home full time, and not having to put the baby into day care so that factor of colds etc is dropped a little and then I feel guilty as I didn’t spend the first 10 months at home with Missy.

I have tried to talk to her about us having a baby, I know we’ve been talking about having another baby with her but I think she just thinks we’re talking. I don’t think she understands that this is a reality that in 9 months we’ll be bringing her brother or sister home with us. I’m excited for this new chapter in our lives to start and for us to raise another beautiful little boy or little girl, but I’m also wondering how well my mama’s girl will handle mama being with someone else most of the time, especially if I breast feed. I’m sure she’ll sail thru this just like she did with school – I remember being soo worried about how she’d do with out me being there and she was just fine with that.

I think once I’ve had my first ultrasound (which is scheduled for March 7th) and I have seen Dr. W, it will all start to feel more real, and maybe most of these “worries” will go away.

Well, I’m pooped, this kid is slowly draining my soul!!

I’ll post more when I get a chance.
